Welcome to ParkSmartTown

In a surprising turn of events, after first revealing that it owed the maker of the ill-fated parking kiosks $200,000, the City of Charlottetown admitted that the city coffers are now completely empty, and the ownership of Charlottetown now rests with ParkSmart.

We really had no choice — we’re broke,” said Public Works Committee chair Stu MacFadyen when asked about the strange turn of events. “We realized that the only responsible course was to turn over ownership of the City to ParkSmart so that we can meet our obligations to them.”

It’s unclear whether the kiosks will remain in place under this new arrangement.
